Today was a milestone day. After school I escorted Princess and the Dog Walker to the main campus at SLCC for the graduation fair. It was so fun to watch the two of them try on their caps and gowns and anticipate their upcoming commencement!
It's been 3 years since we have had a graduation in the family and now suddenly we have 3, two for Princess and one for the Dog Walker. Princess is graduating from SLCC with High Honors, so they gave her gold cords and the Dog Walker is graduating with Honors, so he got silver ones.
They also got to spin a wheel for prizes and Princess won 2 nice mechanical pencils while the Dog Walker won a ceramic mug. When they redeemed their prizes they were also given soda and donuts.
We only had one hiccup when they had a misspelling in Princess's middle name and it took them 20 minutes to decide it was OK to capitalize her A. So silly...
But of course she wants her name to be spelled correctly on her diploma.
So happy for these two! They have both worked so hard and that hard work has finally paid off.
